Police are trying to identify a man who was found dead in the Thames – ten years after his body was discovered.
The man, who is described as Black, between 40 and 50 years old, was found at Bankside Pier, by Shakespeare’s Globe, at 3pm on Saturday, August 26, 2013.
Despite, a media appeal at the time, including the release of an e-fit image, the man has never been identified.
He was of large build, had a beard and moustache, and was balding with dark hair at the sides. He was also wearing a dark blue fleece, a beige shirt, two pairs of dark trousers and brown Aboutblu shoes.
Detective Inspector Adrian Smith said: “Today marks the 10th anniversary of this man being found in the river. Sadly, he remains unidentified.
“Although not everyone has, or remains in contact with, a family, I still remain hopeful that someone will come forward and tell us who he was. Someone must have wondered where he had gone, and what had happened to him.
“It’s possible that they didn’t see our previous appeals, so I would ask that you take a look at the e-fit that we have re-released, and let us know if you remember him.”
Anyone who has information is asked to call the Central South Missing Persons Unit on 0208 649 2152 or via 101 quoting reference 13FOU007742. You can also email officers via: ASMailbox.SafeguardingMISPER@met.police.uk
